Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that this noir-themed film isn't appropriate for kids. It includes violence in the form of several reenactments of a central character's death (as murder or suicide, all possibilities featuring gunshot to his head), as well as repeated images of the crime scene (blood on wall and bed). Another dead body appears on a floor, shot by her husband. A detective is beaten by thugs, resulting in a bruised/bloodied face. Characters appear in bed, though sexual activity is more implied than visible. Major characters smoke incessantly, drink frequently (to the point of drunkenness). Characters use frequent profanity, including multiple "f--k"s and disparaging slang for ethnicity, race, gender, and sexual orientation.

Sexual Content

Some sex scenes, partially clothed, with activity indicated by sound (sighs and moans), by body motion, or (post-sex) by zipping up a fly; kissing; adultery; sexual language.


Repeated images of Reeves' dead body, with blood on the bed, wall, and ceiling.


Frequent uses of the f-word; "s--t," and other curse words; disparaging slang for ethnicity, race, gender, and sexual orientation; sexual slang.

Social Behavior
